Frequently Asked Questions
- 1. WHAT FLAVOUR SHOULD I CHOOSE?
The first choices to make are “What flavour do I choose” and “What nicotine level do I need”. This is a decision that can seem daunting but it is really quite simple.
When it comes to flavour, the choice is personal. All our e-liquids have been through extensive testing so they taste exactly like they say they do.
If you are moving from smoking to vaping; Vape Crew would recommend a tobacco flavour as your main, and a flavour from our other ranges as a “move to” product. As people settle into their new vapelife they often realise that they no longer need to stick with the taste of tobacco to get their nicotine fix. Our most popular flavour is Premium Red.
- 2. WHAT NICOTINE STRENGTH DO I NEED?
Our e-liquids come in 6 nicotine levels (0mg, 3mg, 6mg, 12mg, 18mg, 24mg). They have been specifically made for smokers by (ex)smokers, so all of them have the throat hit that a smoker wants (even the nicotine free e juice).
The higher the nicotine level that you choose the more throat hit you will get. If you smoked a strong cigarette or cigar you should be choosing a higher nicotine level like 18-24mg. If you smoked lights, something more along the 6-12mg would be more suitable. Our most popular nicotine level is the 12mg.
- 3. WHAT’S IN THE JUICE?

4. DOES THIS E-LIQUID SUIT MY VAPING DEVICE?
If you use a smaller, less powerful device you will most probably need a liquid with a higher PG ratio (i.e. VG40/60PG). Most smaller devices (often looking like a pen) need a thinner, more runny liquid as small devices often have small inlets around the coil, and a thick liquid cant pass through fast enough. These devices are usually used with a ‘mouth to lung’ technique.

If you have a higher powered device you will probably need a high VG e-liquid (i.e.VG70/30PG). A high powered device is often quite large and has very large induction holes in the coil, to allow more juice to flow through. If your liquid is too thin these devices can leak - which is a bit of a pain.

- 5. HOW LONG SHOULD A BOTTLE OF E-LIQUID LAST?
When it comes to how much e-liquid you go through, every user is a little bit different, so numbers can vary.
A 60ml bottle of ‘high PG’ e-liquid (i.e. VG40/60PG), used in a ‘pen style’ vaping device (using the mouth to lung technique) would generally last a ‘pack a day’ smoker about 2-4 weeks.
The high VG e-liquids (i.e. VG70/30PG) should be used in sub ohm devices, which are often high powered devices. Because they are generally designed to give you much more cloud you will use more liquid. Approximately 50-100ml a week, or thereabouts, depending on your habits and techniques.
Our e-liquids have a shelf life of 3 years from production. Because we produce our liquids through machinery every bottle is stamped with an expiry date and batch number.
- 6. HOW DO I STORE MY E-LIQUID?
Always store your e-liquid out of reach from children, in a cool, dark place. The sun breaks nicotine down, so if you have nicotine based e-liquid you do not want to leave it in direct sunlight.
Try to avoid excessive heat as heat can cause the flavourings in your e-liquid to over steep and can result in a delicious, yet unexpected taste.
Please ensure you recycle your empty bottles when finished.
